This week we welcome artist Nobuyo Iwasaki to Oaxaca for a 4 month residency and study of natural pigments. Formerly from Japan, Nobuyo joins us from her current home in Canada. Having only been here for 2 days she is already learning a few new techniques as well as experimenting with some of her own.
Last night, Arquetopia introduced its music programs to an audience of potential clarinet students in Oaxaca. The performance was a chance for Chris Davis, Arquetopia’s Director of Music Programs, to showcase his own skills as well as the skills of his most successful student in Mexico, a 13-year-old musician named Ángel Atilano Montellano Urbieta. The two of them played to a packed room in the main university’s Escuela de Bellas Artes (School of Fine Arts) which is housed in a beautiful former Catholic convent from the 1500′s. Afterward, Chris held an open discussion about the launching of Arquetopia’s music education and performance programs and the scholarship program that is now available for all participants.
A big thank you must go to the Universidad Autónoma “Benito Juarez” de Oaxaca, Lic. Eduardo Martínez Helmes and Lic. En Música Fidel Torres González for allowing us to showcase this new and innovative program.
